Giant Paper Flower

So I have been completely enamored by the giant paper flowers that you see as backdrops for weddings or showers or parties.  I’m not really sure why but I thought they would be difficult. I found a short YouTube video this evening and figured I’d give it a shot.  The video was eight minutes long and truthfully it didn’t take too much longer than that to make the flower. I cut it all by hand without a template that the video mentions. If you’ve already done some paper crafting it’s not too hard to do.  And even if you haven’t it’s pretty straightforward.  You will need nine sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock and a glue gun  and scissors. So this is the result and I see many more giant paper flowers in my future!  Here’s the link I found to be super simple.  My completed flower is about 15 inches in diameter. https://youtu.be/2rCXkv0V2r0
